What is Backstage

r more than 50 years, Backstage has been the most trusted place for actors to find career advice and casting information.

Started in December 1960 by Ira Eaker and Allen Zwerdling, Backstage quickly became required reading for every young actor who came to New York to cut their teeth. The newspaper’s original blue-and-red logo became as synonymous with NYC actors as a class at The Actors Studio.

A Los Angeles edition, Backstage West, was launched in 1994, and Backstage.com came to life in 1997. In late 2008, the two regional newspapers were synthesized into a single national edition, now known simply as Backstage, which is sold across the United States and Canada.

Today, the Backstage brand signifies something greater than simply casting notices: Backstage is a place where actors, singers and dancers can connect with the greater performing arts community.

Backstage takes pride in having the most up-to-date technology, whether you are creating a multimedia resume or viewing casting notices. Upload your resume, post photos, upload a reel — all can be done with the touch of a button.
